All about the trip
On this tour you'll walk in the main sector of the Tijuca national park and get to know the most important attractions, such as the Taunay waterfall (35m and highest in the park), the bridge Job de Alcântara built in 1860 and used in the movie Hulk, the Mayrink Chapel and the Visitors center. Our team will lead you in a short ascending hike on a rough trail through a more deeper part of the rainforest. You will experience the nature and the tropical rainforest as we reach the Cascatinha Summit (525m) with a nice view of the valley. After the hike, you’ll be rewarded and invited for a dip in a river to refresh yourself and feel the energy of the tropical rainforest. The tour also includes a visit at Chinese View, one of the most impressive summits of Rio.
You will also discover the history of Rio and Tijuca forest and all about the coffee farms that used to exist there, its golden years and the deforestation that took place in the 19th century.What Wikipedia Says
